Some of you who know me, know that my wife Rosa and I were devastated by the loss of our daughter Alessandra on December 24, 2005. She was just 16 months old, and her death sent us into the bleakest, blackest darkness any human could imagine. In our grief we found support, and the help we needed, to figure out how to survive without our precious daughter in our lives. We got that help from the SUDC Foundation (The Sudden Unexplained Death in Children Foundation). The compassion they showed to us following our own tragedy was nothing short of extraordinary, and meant the world to Rosa and I. The cause of Alessandra’s death was able to be determined, but there are parents whose children’s deaths are not able to be medically explained, and this is how the SUDC Foundation was born. In memory of our beautiful Alessandra, I am now a proud member of the Board of Directors for the SUDC Foundation.
